Our educational program is grounded in Christian teachings and is presented from a Christian perspective. The development of the “whole child” is emphasized as spiritual, mental, physical, and social growth is nurtured. The application of concepts taught is based on the belief that an education grounded in Christian principles and presented in a Christian environment will enhance the student’s life and help him to develop a personal relationship with God through his acceptance of the Lord Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior, and to help him to learn to love others as himself, have a proper love for himself, and have a love for his country and his environment.
“As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him. Rooted and built up in him, and established in the faith, as we have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving. Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.” (Colossians 2:6-8)
